Happy 4th of July

Since tomorrow is the 4th of July, I thought we should try to remember what our country is founded on. There has been a lot of fighting lately about guns, abortion, religion, gay marriage, etc. but even though we may all have different opinions, they are just opinions. The United States of America was founded based on this line from the Declaration of Independence and it would serve us well to remember this above all else – “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

So get your BBQ fired up, your fireworks ready and gather with friends and family and have an awesome 4th of July Celebration!

In case you need a little history refresher (like I did) here is a great School House Rock video, I totally loved these as a kid, to get you started and for a more meatier explanation of the Declaration of Independence, click here.
